Yesterday PIERS employees joined their fellow UBM Global Trade colleagues and traded in their laptops for hammers and hard hats at a local Habitat for Humanity volunteer project in Newark, NJ. Altogether 17 volunteers participated in helping to rehabilitate a local home to provide affordable housing for low income families.
“Our UBM GT Gives Back initiative is an opportunity for our teams to make a positive impact on the lives of those that are less fortunate. We had an amazing day together, everyone found it to be extremely rewarding to give back to the community that’s been home to our headquarters for the last 12 years, and we look forward to finding more ways to give back to our local community,” said Penne Gabel, Vice President of Human Resources at UBM Global Trade.
